    Yeah. I'm not too impressed with the design...

    For a 25 story building, I think that it's a nice design. It's not a box, and it appears to have really nice glass. Also, it replaces what was a truly blighted corner. Remember that horrible bazaar/ flea market that was on this site?

    A little rainy, but green glass is noticeable anyway:

    It looks like the glass on 7WTC only green.

    It almost has that aura of a film layer of algae.

    Construction of a 27-story glass and concrete building has begun at the northeast corner of 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue - on a lot vacant for more than a decade that once held the mansion in which Edith Wharton made her society debut in 1879.
    Didn't Edith Wharton consider New York a backwater compared to London or Paris?
